As summer ends and Autumn turns to Winter, creating an atmosphere that says “the cold and dark nights are coming, but we’re glowing inside” is key to creating a warm ambiance in your home. Candles are perfect for doing this. They can be put around fireplaces, on mantels, as part of your centerpiece, or anywhere else in the home.
The best part of any family holiday party is the Kids Table. Embracing the youngest guests at the party gives them a sense of responsibility and a ‘coolness’ factor they’ll remember until they’re older.
